The email aliases for “faculty” and “consult” are often abused by outsiders to send spam.  As of late yesterday a new filter was added which will automatically discard any email that includes those aliases unless it comes from (approximately) a UofT address.  Most of such spam was automatically discarded (because of our default autodelete settings) by our spam filter in any case, and almost all of the rest was sent to the SuspectedSpam folder (even at our low aggressiveness setting), but this should help with the few, but annoying, spam emails that have gotten through.

If you manage a mailing list and would benefit from similar automatic deletion please let us know at requests@math.toronto.edu.
